Fran Escribá: “There are 15 points left to play and our ambition must be to add them all”.


Emre Mor: he’s not back in time. He tried but has a discomfort that prevents some movements. We hope that he will be there for the match against Leganés.

Boufal’s absence: we are handling several situations. Jozabed, Hjulsager, Pione… I have it clear and we will know tomorrow, although I have the same team idea.

Permanence in First Division: We have not done anything. I hope I’ll be the first to say it, but the gap right now is very small. Feelings are better and the team is able to score points on any field, but we need to keep adding. The goal is to get as many points as possible and we will continue competing until the last minute of the last game.

The math: I have no idea. We have 15 points left to play and our ambition must be to add them all.

Home games: we’ve been close on several occasions and we have to follow the same approach as in the last few games.

Espanyol: I’m worried about a lot of things. They run very well, with fast people up front, and they play the statically very well. I like their conception of the squad and the players they have.

Borja Iglesias: He’s an excellent footballer.

Iago Aspas: we’ve changed him in the last matches and it hasn’t been to be applauded, although he deserves it. We’ve changed him because we had to defend ourselves and Maxi is better in direct play.

Valladolid-Girona: those of us who are involved there prefer the rivals to draw, but I believe that the points that are going to save us are those from our matches.

Locker room: when I arrived I wanted to give them two things: self-confidence and peace of mind. From the beginning I told them to transmit the joy of wanting to take the situation one step further and that has been conveyed. The rapport we have achieved with the fans is very important and influences the players, who feel more supported.
